could eventually life martin to nationals world you sent here in moscow this monday evening i'm kevin 0 and welcome to this 30 minute live update then and 1st fresh doubts are being cast over the credibility of the international chemical weapons watchdog the o.p.c. w tonight as more leaked emails published by wiki leaks reveal concerns from yet another member of the team which probes an alleged attack in the syrian city of duma last year he says the final report into the incident misrepresents their findings. the fact finding mission report does not reflect the views of all the team members that deployed to duma only one fact finding mission team member a paramedic of the so-called fact finding mission core team was in duma we are not insisting on being right in our assertions but we are demanding to be heard. we

have been stonewalled throughout by obfuscation exclusion and even thuggish bullying behavior so the much publicized alleged chemical attack in early april last year reportedly killed dozens of civilians the united states and its nato allies france and the u.k. were quick to conduct air strikes against syrian military targets after it the biggest western military action of the 8 year war the o.p.c. w later deployed experts to the seeing to investigate the suspected chemical attack and the subsequent report pin the blame on the syrian government next tonight our senior correspondent laura galatea of looks steeper into these new revelations. i the nerve about the 3 little piglets but the u.p.c. w. is having its house blown right down from the inside the 1st whistle blower they dismissed the 2nd they sort of excuse themselves and now in what is an absolute bombshell their most qualified inspector the f.f.s.

report does not reflect the views of all the team members that deployed to duma i found that i was being excluded from the work for reasons not made clear allegedly the only team member who went to syria and who was allowed to cool write the syria report was the team paramedic and of the chemical inspectors were allowed to pitch in i attempted to submit my report to the f.m. team leader who's starting from the 15th of february 29th seen after noting continued reluctance from the f f m team to receive my report i deposited the report in d r a for collection on the 27th of february 29th and advised all relevant persons of this shouldn't have bothered it seems no one wanted to read it 48 hours later the u.p.c. w. published its 1st report and sutherland had to really taken a razor to it so much so that the actual team that went to syria didn't recognize it the consensus within the f f m team was that there were indications of serious
12:04 pm
inconsistency isn't findings the conclusions appear to have been turned completely in the opposite direction now that we can exist publish what the preliminary report looked like here's what the u.p.c. the you deleted one evidence that contradicted witness testimony meaning what the alleged witnesses said deferred wildly from the hard evidence found by inspectors to the fact that the hospital videos which so shocked the world will think the victims all actors the speed symptoms inconsistent with. nori poisoning or poisoning with anything found at the scene 3 and this is the big one in the final report they found chlorine not how much just chlorine which you can fire did your kitchen in any home in any swimming pool maybe you're right what about removing trace or some other wording may work i'm still worried that
12:05 pm
a stock standard phrase such as chlorine containing compounds were detected or similar present the danger of it being misrepresented as a damning conclusion it's a political word smithing situation not purely technical and it was the anti acid war hawks trumpet that the fact what the o.p.c. w. did is akin to saying you found radioactive materials and someone's house without mentioning it was a tiny amount to use than fire alarms and this on top of previous whistleblower revelations hard math cast doubt that the canisters at the scene were ever dropped their observations of the scene of the 2 locations suggest that there is a higher probability that both cylinders were money placed at those $2.00 locations rather than being delivered from aircraft it all began with in henderson when he 1st blew the whistle he was mocked smeared insulted u.p.c. w. claimed he wasn't even part of the team they lied leaked documents clearly show he
12:06 pm
was working for the u.p.c. w. shame on the o.p.c. w. you are aware of the highly questionable behavior surrounding this f.m. we as others in the team who would like to but are unable are questioning the work practices follow during this investigation we are not insisting on being right in our assertions but we are demanding to be heard we have been stonewalled throughout biopsied exclusion and even thuggish bullying behavior this is more than a rebellion this is a catastrophe for the o.p.c. w a best this is a case of gross negligence. worse than i pray i'm wrong this is corruption corruption in the very organization that's supposed to keep the world safe from chemical weapons either way from now on when the o.p.c. w. says something people are going to be thinking twice before taking their word for it or footnote to this i can tell you we reached out to go p c
12:07 pm
w for comment over the latest leak in the meantime we spoke to a journalist who attended a briefing by one of the organizations whistleblowers. the person who presented aren't these findings was a scientist and through and through he was not a political at all he told us in the beginning he set you can challenge me you can ask any question your hands we just one to have our voices heard he stressed the point that their findings were excluded from the final report it was completely the opposite actually and i mean the final report was based on the investigations of interior which was working out sites of syria in a country x. we do not know which this country is that you cannot find evidence on something that happened when you go to a different country you must go to the ground where it happened and you have to look there. continue to track this next violent protests against new citizenship
12:08 pm
law in india have reached the capital new delhi since wednesday across the country 6 people have been killed and dozens more injured in the demonstrations over it the muslim community says it's not only discriminatory against them but also unconstitutional. it was was. there yeah. but. there are several really was. the law in question would offer a faster truck citizenship than for migrants from some neighboring muslim majority countries but the list excludes was the migrants themselves the indian government insisted said no way discriminatory prime minister narendra modi says the law is
12:09 pm
intended to give respect to those who fled to india and were forced to live as refugees the editor of a delhi based news website told me that there's fear and confusion in india as big changes take place. so the progress today right now largely to protest of the largely muslim with the protesting against you know the exclusion of muslims but you know in the in the corner of premier which is bordering bangladesh you know we just call northeast india so they are scared that we call this this bill allows illegal to come in from bangladesh you know they did get swamped but there's no law applied all over india in particular in their so large so it's playing out differently in different states have been and it could provinces or this is a fundamental change to wow india is as a country of constitutional change india was founded on secular principles in 90 bodies have it so it's a very concerted attempt to leave islam out of that meekly the reason given for
12:10 pm
this act is is to give shelter to religious minorities there is confusion within the government that is no clear message on what the aims of this bill are other than to call a raid in the. past year on the next as north korea celebrate another missile test washington sent its representative to neighboring south korea during a briefing in seoul the u.s. special envoy revealed that washington is nowhere near reaching its denuclearization goals with pyongyang and is calling on them to continue talks. here today let me speak directly to our counterparts in north korea. it is time for us to do our jobs. let's get to stern. we are here and you know how to reach us the u.s. envoy also stressed the president trump remains confident that the north korean leader kim jong un is quote committed to the same goal as the u.s. will go down off next tonight looks at other tables have turned the know over the past number of years. relations with north korea have been erratic from
12:11 pm
loathing to admiration go we are going down sideways across every dimension really . relationship with to me as you probably korea. getting more interested the united states they will be met with fire as a fury so they have a very good relationship with him is on a suicide mission for himself while now the countries are back watching their relations freefall pyongyang fired the 1st shot literally 2 long range missile tests to rub american faces in it priceless data experience a new technologies gained in the recent tests will be fully applied to the development of another strategic weapon for definitely a more lively restraining and overpowering the nuclear threat of the u.s. not a pleasant face rubbing for trump this is no one's idea of keeping america great establishing
12:12 pm
their denuclearization deal has been hailed as a trump's crowning moment as president despite it now seeming as far away as ever but with time thinking away and before north korea's latest test washington acted like end of year deadline was in its problem. we do not have a year and a deadline there's an artificial deadline set by the north koreans. and unfortunately it's a deadline that they've set upon themselves fast forward to after the launch the u.s. special representative for north korea puts on his best poker face and flies out to south korea the same guy you've just listened to saying that the deadlines for pyongyang not them it's the universal time for new year resolutions but for trump it's way bigger than just that it's the result of his entire presidency 2 years ago
12:13 pm
he was the queen of the prom playing hard to get with pyongyang standing up his date dishing out sanctions left and right now he's already conceded in his trade war with china backtracking on tariffs in exchange for a pinky promise from beijing so north korea wants to strike 2 while the election iron is hot and trump is soft i think for trump or kind of put him in a bind because the only thing you have going for him over for the humor to. open dialogue with north korea and of. it goes nowhere because he refuses to offer a north korea anything exchange for demanding to know clarification that he's got nothing to show for reelection campaign simplied 3 year north korea and after the new year if there is no resumption of talks that they would resume their intermediate. i.c.b.m.
12:14 pm
program a nuclear weapons program of course i think in reality north korea would probably hold off on that and still hope that talks could resume but they're trying to encourage basically the u.s. to return to the negotiating table a resumption of tensions or resumption of dialogue that's choice it's up to the united states and stead of offering north korea and through the u.s. hostile policy which threatens its right to survive oh and development then there can be no hope for a solution kim jong un and trump known pen pals and the u.s. president to enjoy their correspondence a lot i got a very a letter from him yesterday with the. liberty. with very. little security really i think he might not enjoy this christmas gift north korea has already put under the white house tree though along with a few into continental firecrackers to light up the new year. he goes down off
12:15 pm
reporting the now look at it head to sydney go to london a few today here at various times of the t.v. set of things and also online if you like in fact i know it's a u.k. 20 minutes we shared the story of a man who spent 21 years on death row and escaped through the teen execution dates can much of that only to be freed up to evidence against him was then found to be false. 54 years old and 21 half years on death row on ohio. for a crime i didn't commit. against the ricci who was tried in ohio for aggravated murder committed in the course of a felony the ohio court was told that kenny into could damage of the fact that the neighbor an apartment had been left with only the 2 year old victim inside it was alleged that his intention was for the fire to spread to the lower floor where his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend were sleeping the case relied on that does to
12:16 pm
moan as if people attending the party who stated under oath that ricci was drunk and had threatened to burn down the building also i wouldn't you want the present and the judges to be as free as well you get his lawyers came to an agreement with the prosecutors. the arson and murder charges were a plea bargain down to child endangerment only one person in the court house still believed in ken is guilty you will. never particularly get to say he loves kids. almost 20 years later gainey and his lawyers would prove that the investigation had been flawed resulting in the wrong conclusions all those years were stolen from you you just try and make up for them get yourself a life yourself together trudge. back every time.

thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. it is relatively easy to explain the tories spectacular victory in the general election for the elites it was about jeremy corbyn but for the voters it was all about brakes and indeed it was greg's a 2.0 for bojo it is time for the liberal. united nations will continue supporting some 5000000 palestinian refugees for another 3 years that decision was reached after a 169 members voted in favor with only 2 with the u.s. and israel against the move the united states wants to shift the un's relief services basically to refugee host countries an issue it tried to influence the agency over before indeed look at the recent history in 2018 the u.s.
12:20 pm
halted 360000000 dollars in aid well this year over $60000000.00 in security funds to the palestinians was stopped donald trump previously claimed washington received no appreciation or respect for the money he said it provided to the region but the u.n. agency itself is all that said still hoping america will have a change of heart over these. latest funding cuts. and we hope that the american review again just to reconsider the importance of on the raw the services that would provide it and how it would be effective just to be in the region one had how would. i really on the right is an element of peace and stability the un r.w. ways been providing health and relief services for palestinians since 1949 israel and washington accuses it though of extending the region's conflict by widening crucially refugee status to millions of descendants rather than only 2 original refugees it operates in the west bank and gaza as well as jordan lebanon and syria
12:21 pm
r.t. spoke to some of the refugees then direct that it helps. i like my school is the teachers math english and so many other subjects they provide us with all our books and other stationery i hope that my school doesn't get shut down so that i can go and learn so that when i'm older i'm educated people are in real need of this help because it is providing them with many services for example if our food coupons go it will be difficult as so many families rely on it the situation inside gasser is already so bad the head of we have no jobs and nothing improves for workers or even the doctors no one can reach a normal standard of living that the us wants to close the u n r w a because they want to cancel any rights for a few g.'s they want to cancel even the name of refugees so that they can sake their you an r. w. a out of gaza strip see whether with this at the end of the day it's
12:22 pm

12:28 pm
hello and welcome to cross talk or all things are considered i'm peter lavelle it is relatively easy to explain the tories spectacular victory in the general election for the elites it was about jeremy corbett but for the voters. it was all about briggs and indeed it was brags that $2.00 for bojo it is time to deliver and mr lover of goes to washington. cross talking some real news i'm joined by my us going to use and he is a professor at the higher school of economics as well as author of the nikkei of western civilization and we surgeons of russia we also have dimitri bobbitt she's a political analyst and editor and interest me internet media project and in london we cross alexander make errors he's a writer on legal affairs as well as editor in chief of the duran dot com hi
12:29 pm
gentlemen crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate let's go to london alexander the dust is settling ok about this general election the blow out of the labor is spectacular and we have to go all the way back to 1035 i suppose the the civil war within the labor party has already started and now we have a majority for the tories something we haven't seen since margaret i'm not sure what does this tell us about the electorate because a week ago if you were to tell me working class people that have never voted tory ever in their whole life or millennial voting for the 1st time they all voted or many of them majority of them voted tory what is going on this is a earthquake in british politics it was an earthquake in british politics but essential to qualify and i've seen many places this claim about labor having its worst results since $9935.00 this is highly misleading ok
12:30 pm
if you look at the percentage of the vote labor goes around $32.00 said that he's more than he got in 20152010 in 19879092 it's simply not the number of them he. there we go in the house of commons and there is a reflection of our rather strange electoral system and the fact that labor in 2015 lost around 50 and he. went out but i defended his right wing ok well ok that's why we have this program here i agree with you no no less my friend this is a humiliation and again you know having so many parts of the country traditionally going labor went to the other side that is something quite spectacular absolutely.
